The Best Multi-Purpose Beauty Products To Try
Glossier Cloud Paint
The Cloud Paint from Glossier is a buildable gel-cream blush pink that can also apply to lips and lids. It goes on sheer, but you can easily layer it for the perfect natural-looking flush. Just use the tips of your fingers to gently dab it on. Special blurring pigments create a lit-from-within glow that doesn’t accentuate pores or wrinkles.
I’m not sure if there is a single beauty product that is more multi-purpose than coconut oil. You can use it pretty much from head to toe, as an oil treatment for your hair and scalp. You can gently massage a small amount onto your face to remove sunscreen and makeup. It’s a great option as an all-natural moisturizer for dry skin, and some people even use it for cleaning their teeth.
This might be the sunscreen that does it all. Not only does this sunscreen keep your skin protected from the sun with SPF 40, but it also acts as a makeup primer. It’s made with hyaluronic acid to help hydrate skin, and the pearlescent finish works on most skin tones. You’ll instantly have a radiant dewy glow. And you can rest easy knowing the brand is vegan and cruelty-free. You can read here my top 30 Best Vegan Beauty Products To Try.
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint
This lightweight tinted serum provides light, dewy coverage, with mineral SPF, and active levels of skincare ingredients. In just one step you get skincare ingredients, sun protection, and even, beautiful coverage. With a color range of 30 shades, the product line can cover most skin tones.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask
The Jet Lag facial mask from Summer Fridays nourishes, hydrates, and calms irritated skin. With niacinamide, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and other antioxidants on its list of active ingredients, your skin will be soft, and with a more even tone and texture. Apply the mask and then wash it off like you would a normal face mask. But If your skin is in need of some extra TLC, use the Jet Lag Mask in place of your normal face cream and leave it on for the day or night.
CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Espresso
You can use this versatile brown eyeliner for so much more than just lining your lashes. Rub this creamy liner all over your lid to use as an eye shadow, simply use your finger to smudge it, and create an easy smokey eye. The small tip of the pencil also makes this liner ideal for filling in brows with tiny hairlike strokes. Lastly, the espresso shade is perfect for creating realistic-looking faux freckles.
Jojoba, grape seed, evening primrose, and rosehip oils make this a truly hydrating serum. But it can also be used as an illuminating primer. But unlike other primers that overwhelm with too much glitter and sparkle, Futuredew will brighten your complexion and give you a dewy fresh-faced glow.
Dr. Pawpaw Original Multipurpose Soothing Balm
Dr. PAWPAW’s is an award-winning 100% natural, vegan, and cruelty-free multipurpose soothing balm. Its formula includes shea butters, papaya fruit, aloe vera, and olive oil. It soothes and protects sensitive and irritated skin as well as offers relief from eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, insect bites, and blemishes. You can also use is this magic balm to help heal burns, and cuts, as well as prevent scarring. And because Dr. Pawpaw’s balm is truly multi-purpose, it can be used on lips, nail cuticles, skin, and hair.
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
Most people have and need a separate moisturizer for their face and body. But because the Moisturizing Cream from CeraVe is non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin you can use it on both your body and face. This rich, velvety moisturizing cream formula is a great non-expensive option that provides 24-hour hydration and helps restore the skin’s barrier.
You can find different size tubs and tubes of Aquafor in every room of my house and car. It may be one of the top multi-purpose skincare products on this list. Aquaphor can be used for pretty much all skincare needs, from chapped lips, dry hands, cracked feet, minor wound care, and even diaper cream.
BioTrue Multi-Purpose Solution
Anyone that wears contacts or suffers from dry eyes knows how essential saline solution is to have on hand. But did you know there are some other reasons keeping this multi-purpose solution on hand is a good idea? You can use it as a mixing medium for water and powder-based makeup application.
Biossance 100% Squalane Oil
Biossance’s 100 squalane oil is a weightless and multipurpose beauty oil made derived from renewable sugarcane. Suitable for all skin types, squalane will soothe redness and helps maintain hydration. Add a few pumps to your body lotion to help alleviate dry skin, smooth a small amount through the ends of your hair to combat frizz, and reduce dry, split ends. You can also dab some on your lips, for a soft, smooth pout or pat a few drops into your face, for an all-day hydrated glow.
Maybelline New York Clear Great Lash
This clear mascara glides on smooth to build thicker lashes. You can easily separate lashes without worrying about making a dark clumpy mess. But that’s not all this transparent formula can be used for. Instead of buying a second brow gel, you can use this one to shape your brows, as well as tame any unruly flyaways. This one little tube does the job of three different products saving you money and space in your makeup bag.

The ultimate multi-tasking tinted balm for lips, cheeks, and even your lids if you like. It’s packed with green tea extract and aloe vera, to calm, soothe and hydrate skin. You’re left with a lit from within rosy glow that doesn’t settle into fine lines and is never cakey. You can also rest easy knowing what your putting on your face is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and it comes in 6 beautiful shades.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm
The Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is the number 1 best-selling cleanser from this luxury skincare brand. And for good reason too. This rich creamy balm melts away makeup and any residue from the day. When you add water, it emulsifies into hydrating milk that easily rinses off. It can also double as one of the most hydrating face masks. Made with sweet almond, elderberry, and oat kernel oils to help protect the skin’s lipid barrier, even the most sensitive skin is left feeling nourished and looking radiant. The cleansing balm comes in the original and my personal favorite Rose scent.
